"Though this is not an ideal way to travel, I know that she will be fine. My concern is whether the airline officials will permit her to travel in this carrier.

Is there any information or experiences that you can share with me? Thanks!"

Call your airline!!! Advice on here in this case is worth what you pay for it? Do you really want to be standing at the counter saying "the folks on Fodors travel talk said I could bring him on?"

As to the flyer who said they had never flown on a plane with a pet. Don't count on it. I have had several pets on flights that you would never know about. I once flew to Paris with a pet under the seat two over from me. I found out the dog was there after landing when I saw them walking the dog in the security area. (I realized that I had seen the case move once during the night, but had decided then that I was crazy!) That dog never made a peep!

Once I was on a flight with a dog who got to sit in the seat (with seatbelt of course), and it wasn't a seeing eye dog. It had some special permit as it was in the entertainment industry and it behaved perfectly. I can't remember what airline. Sounds crazy but I swear its true!

That is so funny, I got a great picture of the dog sitting upright in my head! I think it is funny to see dogs in seatbelts when they are riding in cars.

There were dogs on a flight home from Provo, they were in shirpa bags and I did not even know they were there. The only reason I knew they were on the plane was because I saw them boarding!

I can't imagine that an airline would let a dog ride in a carrier with its head sticking out. First, that doesn't protect the other passengers from the animal if it gets upset and snaps. Second, in turbulence, etc., the carrier could be tossed around and the dog could sustain a very serious injury to its neck and head.

In the Best Friends book by Michael Mountain, there's a great story about a large dog on an airplane... those passengers were saints to be so understanding.

The little dog on Frazier used to fly first class.
